Your Heart



Your heart is so big, but not so strong.

When did you first hear that something was wrong?

If a doctor has told you, you have only so long,

Disregard the diagnosis, as you would a broken song.

I don't know much about miracles today,

But I believe the collective consciousness of love,

Is powerful enough to move things in an angelic way.

Selfishly, I hope you are deemed enough time to stay,

Five more years with this world, before recycling day.
